The material and political gestures of DJ’ing and dancing
For the second year, ICK Amsterdam joins forces with ADE to create a program where choreographers and DJ’s come together to explore the intersection of their practices. This year’s theme is inspired by the moment the beat kicks in – the Drop.
ICK (International Choreographic Arts Centre), directed by Emio Greco en Pieter C. Scholten, is an acclaimed dance platform that produces international dance performances, collaborates with guest artists and initiates various education projects. As the Amsterdam City Company for Contemporary Dance and as the resident company of Theater De Meervaart, ICK contributes to dance development in the city. The dance ensemble of ICK is distinguishable by the specific dance language developed by the choreographers. The intuitively moving body is always central to their work. The repertoire of ICK possesses a special quality of communicating deeper layers of meaning to the audience, whilst also attracting spectators who merely wish to enjoy the beauty of the dance to the performances. The company received various prestigious prizes and toured all over the world during the past twenty years.
